University Pickers is the vision of Paul and Katherine Schurer: a couple of out-of-towners who fell in love with Rocket City, settled down, and now call it home. If you love filling your home with unique and vintage pieces, you should pay a visit to their shop. The 7,500 square foot space is filled to the brim with goods from dozens of dealers and local artisans. If there is something special you’re looking for, you can even put in a request and have one of their Pickers help you hunt it down. It is a great local gem that you don’t want to miss.
